8:46 am
skies and sun over the durham -- athletic park. the last game of the bulls season today at 1:05 for the 1st pitch versus norfolk, i believe it is. i'll have the forecast for that game coming up in just a couple minutes here. right now the durham, it's 61 degrees. our wake forest has 57. we've got 59 in kerry and monocure this morning. about 60 over towards buckhorn. as we wind that view a bit, we're ranging from upper degrees. south hill up to 63. rocky mount wilson area up to 62. we have 64 in irwin and fayetteville. about 62 degrees for southern pines. now, as we take a look at satellite across the region over the last 24 hours, you'll see a couple things here. just fair weather clouds over north carolina at times yesterday. not an awful lot of those. then clear skies here the night. still the circulation associated with hermine off to our northeast.
8:47 am
certainly doesn't look the classic way that tropical systems do. it's got a frontal boundary associated with it. it's a low pressure area. there's an upper-level low just south -- it's moving north slowly now, with 70 miles per hour maximum sustained winds. but that upper level low will probably turn a little bit to the west a short time for the next day, day and a half. after that it kind of circles back um, parallels the coles. after a few days it will likely start to dissipate. it does bring enough impact to the united states, that there are tropical storm warnings in effect for long island up through the cape cod area this morning. and as we watch, one of the reasons they are under that warning is the potential for tropical storm force winds, and that means 39 miles per hour winds sustained, and the chances of that is the probability next few days, about 50 to 05% for parts of cape cod, maybe 45 to 50% on long island. of course much better chances
8:48 am
the particular track that the storm is going to be taking next few days. looks like, as far as we go, about the only thing it's going to do is circle high clouds on the west side of that storm, upper level low into eastern north carolina as we go through the curse of the day. we'll see a few of those. overall a large ridge of high pressure extending in from our north and west looks like it will be the dominant feature for us today. we've got sunny skies this morning. we'll see those mixed with just a few high clouds afternoon hours. as the bulls have their 1st pitch at 1:05, plenty of sun, a couple high sir rise clouds. by 3:30 game should be just about wrapping up. the humidity fairly low at that point. humidity stays fairly low tomorrow as well, although we get up to about 91 degrees. if you're out early tomorrow morning at 5:25, we'll have an international space station pass overhead. it will appear high in the west, southwestern sky,
8:49 am
in the sky, about 77 degrees above the horizon. so should be bright. and than disappears just 2, 3 minutes later, low in the nearby sky. looks like we'll heat up more as we get into wednesday, thursday, and friday. by then, we're turning more humid. we get into the mid-90s on thursday and friday, edging down temperaturewise a little for saturday and sunday. sunday probably our next chance with any chance of rain. even that is quite low. on the roads, things remain quiet there at i-540 and -- we take a quick lo and lake wheeler road. in the construction area, you can see everybody moving along just fine. back to you. >> thanks, mike. lena and i are last-minute holiday shoppers, but a lot of people, lot of people, get started in july. >> i envy them. >> i do, too. >> we're not even through the labor day holiday, but some shop rester already planning for the next halloween and holiday season after that. chris klacum has more on what's being called the
